Lavish Love Rewarded

Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
Mary lavished her love on Jesus. She poured a very costly perfume upon the Lord. It was a substance so precious that it took a year’s worth of work to purchase it. She poured $40,000 worth of perfume on Jesus. What extravagance!
The disciples saw this as a waste, especially Judas. But Mary didn’t think it was a waste. Jesus didn’t think it was a waste either. In fact, Jesus thought it was so fitting that He promised that no one would ever forget Mary’s lavish love.
When we pour ourselves out for Jesus, His blessing upon us is always greater than our sacrifice. This is the great gift of grace. As we love the Lord lavishly, He responds with kindness and blessing.

Minister: Dear Saints, The Lord takes note of every little kind word and deed. He is gracious to His saints through the shed blood of His Son, Jesus. Rejoice, you are forgiven!
